About the artworkThis original landscape painting by Sylvia Paul portrays the joyful subject matter of Anemone in a calming natural setting. The artist applies expressive paint work to the scene involving burgeoning flora and verdant greenery, imbuing the study with energy and vitality. This is complemented with a palette of bright tones which creates a serene ambience that is greatly settling. Paint is applied in an impasto style that produces an artwork which has interesting textures. This piece is painted in oils on canvas, hand signed by the artist and ready to be displayed.
Sylvia Paul studied painting at Colchester School of Art and Hockerill College of Education. She has been exhibiting in East Anglia for over 20 years and has held numerous solo exhibitions.
Although many of her paintings are inspired by the coast, her subject matter covers a broad spectrum. Recently her Japan inspired abstracts have attracted particular interest, one of them being hung in The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2009.
She has held two solo exhibitions in Japan and in 2013 at her exhibition at Gallery Sakura, Nagoaka, 36 paintings were sold in three days.
